Having burned a dvd i try to play it in my dvd player but the dvd freezes half way through so i try it in the ps3 and does the same around the same spot on the dvd
If it is a dual layer DVD (8.4GB), you are probably freezing at the layer break. This is the place on the DVD where the burner shifts the burn from the first layer to the second layer of the DVD. There is a lot of this problem. It is due in part to variables in DVD burners and readers, but mostly in the quality of the media being burned. Dual layer DVD media is very finicky and I personally avoid it if at all possible. I have had too many issue of incompatibility of media to burners and as a result burned too many coasters for my liking. Obviously, if the media is going to give the burners issues, what do you suppose will happen when trying to use it in a player? If you must burn dual-layer DVD media, you are best to buy the best. It costs more, but the headaches are not worth the apparent savings. I have had luck with the VERBATIM Dual Layer Media, but have been told that there are occasionally issues here too, depending upon where the media was produced. There is a great deal of information on the wen you can persue on this,,,a simple Google on best Dual-Layer DVD media will open Pandora box!
